Fresh Meat stars tour universities

Stars of Channel 4 hit Fresh Meat have lectured students, served at a canteen and raced tricycles as they went on a breakneck tour of universities for Comic Relief.

The actors, including comic Jack Whitehall, were taking on a range of challenges as they visited seven different seats of learning throughout one day.

The group - which was completed by Greg McHugh, Kimberley Nixon, Joe Thomas and Zawe Ashton - were making their way from Newcastle to Loughborough by bus.

The cast of the student-based comedy series spent the morning serving breakfast to bleary-eyed students, with Jack getting so hot in the canteen that he stripped to his undies.

He said: "I never had breakfast when I was at university - I don't think I ever got up in time."

They later raced tricycles at Durham University and delivered lectures to 550 students at Leeds.

Kimberley spoke about Agatha Christie's Poirot, Jack chose to discuss Kriss Akabusi, and Greg opted to talk about the movie Jaws.

The trip did not go entirely to plan after their bus became stuck in traffic and they were forced to miss scheduled stops in Manchester and Sheffield.

Whitehall told fans via Twitter: "So we have been stuck on the M62 for three hours haven't moved so sorry to anyone that's waiting for us. We're stranded."
